    I'm getting so worried that none of the other eggs are going to hatch. Only one chick is out but he's been out for hours. Is he early? I really don't want him to be alone.

    What day are you on? Congrats on the baby! There usually is an "early bird". Do you hear any others peeping or see any eggs rocking back and forth?

    So they were set on Dec 28th? About what time? Did you candle them thru the incubation period? Have they been in lockdown since January 15th?

    I candled them all throughout and most seemed like they were growing

    Have you opened the lid? If they are not kept in lockdown it could compromise the humidity and the temp. What is the temp on now? Have any more hatched? I am so hoping they hatch for you[​IMG]

    No we candled them because of curiosity and its turns out there either clear or died in the middle stage
